The K9W DXpedition to Wake Atoll has now completed.
All equipment has been taken offline and prepared for shipment to the U.S. Final upload to ClubLog will take place within the next 24-48 hours.
The K9W team wishes to thank the DXpedition community for their tremendous support. We put over 100,000 QSOs in the log from 186 discrete DXCC entities. The K9W operators are grateful for the opportunity to have honored the Forgotten 98 during our DXpedition.
More photos and video footage will be posted to the website very soon. 73 from Wake Atoll.
I was born in the 1960’s and have lived all my life in the Coal Mining Town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, Northern England. My parents were all from this area of Yorkshire and my father worked in the main Industry of the local Collieries as a face worker. I have been married to my wife Debbie for 35+ years and we have two children and two grandchildren.
I have been licensed for around 20 years after my interest was re-kindled when I retired from my role as a Police Officer within South Yorkshire Police Force. The latter few years were spent as Radio Operator in the Force Operations Control Room at Sheffield, before my career ended.
IOTA chasing is (and always has been) my real passion, as climbing the ladder to reach Honour Roll status was always my main aim. The 1000 Islands Trophy is still out of reach but I am heading in the right direction. I am currently a Board Member of IOTA Ltd and IREF.
In my free time I am a keen Photographer of Wildlife, Aviation, (anything really) but the QSL Manager role is my main passion within Ham Radio.
